FFES Summer Reading
Why read over the summer?
While the brain freeze you may get from a popsicle may not last long, putting your brain on a reading freeze for the whole summer can have harmful effects. Research shows that students who read over the summer come back to school with improvements in reading and writing. Students who do not read, though, can take their skills backward as much as three months!
